Michael Jackson

Molestation Talk

Banned from Manslaughter Trial

8/29/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_michael_jackson_BN
A judge has ruled that witnesses will NOT be allowed to discuss Michael Jackson's child molestation case during Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said any testimony relating to the molestation case is irrelevant -- and would be distracting and misleading to the jury.

The judge also banned Arnie Klein from testifying -- after prosecutors argued the defense would try to blame the dermatologist for the death ... and take away attention from the man on the hot seat -- Dr. Murray.

How in the hell can they ban Arnie!?!?! If anyone, he could have mass information for both sides. He knows way more than he is admitting and everything should be out on the table here

After seeing the rape of his estate by his family, I assume the death of Michael Jackson is a minor consideration now.

I think they should dig up MJ and put some wheels on him. I bet he could win Dancing w The Stars.

What in the hell would one have to do with the other in the first place? If I were a juror I think I would come unglued if a lawyer started talking about molestation when the trial is about the possible murder the good doctor might have done. The judge is absolutely right to rule this way. This jackass doctor and his lawyers are looking for every scapegoat they can possibly find to take the heat of their asses. There is no reason that the drug used should have been in Jackson's home. It was used in hospitals only from what I understand. I can't wait to hear his explanation for why it was in Jackson's home and the part he played in getting it there.

This is a good decision. In no uncertain terms, the Judge is saying YOU are on trial Dr. Murray NOT Michael Jackson.

@marty from modesto

you are seriously delusional. the only ones raping and sodomizing MJ's estate are the vultures/men who are running it. all the money pouring in from video games, unreleased music, ridiculous cirque du soleil shows, toys, posters, etc., who's pockets do you think that money is going into? not MJ's kids pockets, or his family.

This is wrong. Michael Jackson's molestations should be allowed at Dr. Murder's trial.

Somebody must have bribed the judge.

You are RIGHT Marty. And you are WRONG Daivd. MJ's Estate would be broke and NOTHING left for his kids if the greedy Jacksons got their hands on it. MJ made a WISE DECISION!

It has nothing to do with this trial. It shouldn't even have been an issue.
